We have no babies yet, but Monday ain’t over yet. Is all I’m sayin’. I could still be right that she’ll have her babies today! (But I don’t think so.) We’ll see!
Over the weekend, she slept a lot.
She ate a lot.
She thought a lot.
She likes this corner of the room.
Probably because it’s kind of hard for the humans to get to. It’s the corner under the wall basket, and so I have to kind of squeeze over there and bend over to get to her.
So, a few things: there’s been belly movement that is definitely belly movement. So I’m confident that she IS pregnant, but have zero clue when they’ll actually come. I can’t give y’all a report on her nipples because I know they’re there, but there’s so much belly floof that I can’t see them. I don’t feel full milk sacs yet.
I am NOT naming one of her kittens Katrina. It’s a pretty name, but Katrina did so much damage that to New Orleans that I feel ookie at the thought of giving a kitten that name. Etoufee is also off the table (see what I did there?), awesome as it is, because in French it means “choked,” so no. At some point I’ll get all the names into a list and post them, and y’all can warn me about any negative connotations I don’t know of – my rule right now is that I’m not going with anything too difficult for a non-Louisianan to pronounce. That could change, of course!
